Gluten free Methi or Fenugreek paratha recipe:

Its almost November which also means it’s officially the paratha season for us. I kickstarted the season with this Methi paratha. It’s green, spicy, healthy plus you can eat these with chai anytime, so when i make i try to make some extras. I have two for lunch and one with my evening tea. I think when it gets cold, it tastes even better.

Serves: 2

Prep time: 10-12 mins

Cooking Time: 5-6 minutes



Fresh Fenugreek/Methi Leaves: 2 cups. Washed and chopped finely.

Green Coriander: 1 cup. Leaves chopped.

Green Chillies: 2-3, finely chopped.

Onion: 1. Finely chopped

Gluten Free Chapati Flour (available easily in the market): 1 1/2 cups

Ajwain Seeds: 2 tablespoon

Salt to taste

Dry mango Powder: 2 teaspoon

Any available pickle masala (optional, though it adds a great flavour to the paratha): 2 tsp

Coriander Powder: 1 teaspoon

Water to form the dough

Butter/ghee/*vegetable oil: to cook the parathas. *Vegans you can go with any oil of your choice.



Combine everything together and form a dough. Add water slowly, knead the dough for a long time. The more time you spend with the dough the elasticity of the dough will be better. That will later help you roll out the parathas better.

Make small dough balls.

Roll them like chapati with a rolling pen.

On a tawa or a non stick pan, cook the paratha.

Place the paratha in the pan when the pan is hot. Then after a minute or so, flip the paratha. Now add some olive oil/ghee/butter to the paratha. Start with one tablespoon. The paratha will turn brown the moment you add the oil/ghee/ Cook on low heat so that the dough cooks properly. Now flip the paratha, add some butter/ghee/oil to the other side too. Cook this side too, take the paratha off when it is golden brown or looks crisp and cooked. Do not over cook the paratha, we don’t want dark brown colour on it, just golden brown.

Serve with pickle or the green coriander chutney. You can find many chutney recipes in the chutney/dip section.


My take: I had my parathas with the green coriander chutney, some butter, a bit of jaggery  and ginger tea. Ah heavenly!
